BREAKTHROUGHS FROM THE BREAKDOWNS
See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."
Do you ever just break down and cry like a baby? I mean do you ever sit in the midst of a storm and declare that you will never go through this same storm again? Do you realize that when you declare you will never go through the same storm again and mean it that you are getting your breakthrough in the midst of your breakdown?
Breaking down is not a bad thing if you realize who can build you up. Somewhere in the midst of our tears our Father in heaven hearkens to the sound of our cry. Our cry causes God to stop and stand at attention. You see He wants to hear from your heart what causes your pain. He wants to give you a breakthrough during your breakdown.
As I think about some of the storms that I have faced in life I realized that those were the times that I drew nearer to God. Who else could I call that had a definite answer to my problem? Who else understood the entire situation even the parts I did not want to talk about? Who else could make the winds be still? Who else could turn my situation around? Who else but God?
One of the things that I have realized is that God is the answer to everything. Though I may face storms, because God is the answer, I know that I am never alone. Though I may have some heartache, because God is the answer, I know that there is always someone there with unconditional love. Because God is everything I know that I will get my breakthrough from my breakdowns.
So today know that it is okay to cry sometimes. There are times when crying brings about revelations of how you can get your breakthrough. Trust that if you give God all of your problems then He will work it out for you. You have to stand on the promises of God. You have to know the Word of God to know His promises. You have to have a relationship to know His voice. You have to trust that He will give you a breakthrough from your breakdown. Trust God.
